This file is optional

A Makefile serves as a convenience for outlining the build. This helps streamline additional developer contributions to the project. Please reference the GNU documentation for implementation details.

An alternative to using make is to use the nix specification.

This purpose of this file is to:

  • Read the docker container and build the project

  • Build all prerequisites for running the docker file

  • Build all dependencies

  • Package assets and docker image using start-sdk pack


The LND wrapper features a well defined Makefile, for example.
